Martin Middlebrook is a Lincoln shire farmer and lives in Boston. In 1967, while on a visit to France and Belgium, he was so impressed by the military cemeteries on the 1914-1918 battlefields that he decided to write a book about the soldiers of the First World War. This book, The First Day of the Somme, was published by Allen Lane in 1971 and was widely acclaimed both in this country and the United States. His second work the Nuremberg Raid, a disastrous nigh for the RAF Bomber Command, followed ad this was also published in Germany. Convoy, published in 1976, completed the trilogy on the theme of the part played by the ordinary men of the three armed services in two world wars.
